James Logan Wheeler left us peacefully at home on April 10, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer. He leaves behind his wife of 27 years, Jackie Wheeler; his son, Logan Wheeler; and is also survived by numerous in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends around the country. James was a native of New Orleans, a city he loved, and enjoyed giving driving tours to friends and family visitors. He was a graduate of Ridgewood Preparatory School and earned his law degree from Tulane University. He traveled the world while practicing law. His second love was cars, and after his retirement, he took over his BMW repair shop, Bimmerwerks. James was a bright and intelligent man with an outgoing personality who loved to tell jokes and talk to everyone he met.
